A Temecula man was behind bars today for allegedly robbing a woman outside Pechanga Casino and dragging her with his car, authorities said.
Eric Michael Weekly, 23, of Murrieta, and Marcos Flores Sanchez, 27, of Temecula, allegedly drove up beside the victim as she was walking in the parking lot outside Pechanga Resort and Casino at about 3:30 a.m. Sunday.
The passenger in the car reached out and grabbed the woman's purse, but the woman attempted to hang onto her purse, and was dragged 10 to 15 feet, said sheriff's Sgt. Keith Knotek in a press release.
"The victim fell onto the pavement after being dragged, at which time she suffered minor to moderate injuries," Knotek said.
We hope the victim recovers quickly. It may be safer to not visit this casino.
